One of the two Libyan Air Force Mirages F1 that flew to Malta unexpectedly from Okba Ben Nafi Air Base. They were ordered to bomb protesters that took control of Benghazi, but instead the pilots made their way to Malta stating that they were low on fuel.

It would be a complete chore if those pilots would acomplished the mission over Gadafi's mansion and then turned to Malta. That would be a very patriotic job! Anyway, congratulations to those braves!
